I have looked over the older posts and todays front page and have not seen this topic brought up. For those of you who listen to Petro on 810 may have heard this, and it seems like a pretty good topic to me.
In his first drafts GMDM was going after young players with better upside. In the recent draft and in Petro's discussion with GMDM, he says he is now going for college level experienced players in the draft.
A caller brought up the point, that as far as The Process goes; the best case scenario would be for the Royals drafts to all hit at the same time. The younger players should be ready for the bigs at the same time as the college draftees; giving the Royals a glut of MLB ready talent all at once.
Perhaps this is a total accident, perhaps intentional, whatever. What do you guys think about this and how beneficial will this be to the Royals over the course of the next 2-3 years. Is this beneficial at all or is this just the same old Royals tripping over themselves at every point in a continuingly futile attempt to effectively compete.
